e ^■wag Tradition lar idem Teaching Dlarier President's Message I ears ago, Professor Virginia Francisco was asked how she would describe Mary Baldwin to someone who didn't know us. She said she would begin with, "We are not what you think we are." 1 would add today that we may not even be what we think we are. Extraordinary things are happening at Mary Baldwin. First, take a look at enrollment. Our total enrollment this year will he about 2,140, includ- ing all programs. This total compares with 2,025 last fall. It is an all-time record. In the last three years, we have set three records for new on- campus students, including PEG: 298, 322,327. Our on-campus total this year will be a record 848 students. What about quality? Our acceptance rate for new on-campus students is down from almost 89 percent last year to 79 percent this year. Average SAT scores have risen to 1064 this fall, well above the national average. When historical SAT scores are recentered to get to the same scale, 1064 is the highest mark since 1975, up 46 points in six years. We have done follow-up surveys of our gradu- ates every year since 1 983 . We ask them to rate us. Graduates in the class of 1995 gave our academic program the best ratings in our history. Last year's entering class was the most diverse ever: 19 percent minority and international. This year's freshman class continues to be diverse. Please don't think it's like this everywhere in higher education. There are very few colleges in the country that have accomplished what we have in the area of enrollment. Our current success is not an accident. It is the result of a well-executed plan to bring our under- graduate on-campus enrollment to 850, a goal set several years ago by our planning committees and the Board of Trustees. We studied the demograph- ics and knew that although there was a decrease in the number of 18-20 year olds through the middle of this decade, there would be an upswing toward the end of the decade. We looked at where in the country the numbers would start rising, then made sure we had a strong admissions presence in those areas. We held fast during the demographic down- turn, not allowing programs to suffer. We were so successful even during the downturn that we bucked the trend and have had increased overall enrollments every year for the past 10 years. I wish I could now end by saying that everything is perfect at Mary Baldwin, but we know that is not true. I see seven areas of challenge ahead of us: 1 . We need to find an acceptable middle ground given competing financial needs: balance the bud- get, reduce the draw on the endowment, raise salaries, raise operating and maintenance budgets, and find new money to pay for new technology. 2. We need to increase our endowment. Of the colleges we consider our peers for faculty salary comparisons, our endowment is 16th out of the 17 that report endowments. Our endowment per stu- dent is less than one-fourth the average of the other three women's colleges in the state. 3. We need to maintain the necessary enroll- ment levels and hold the line on financial aid at the same time. We need to be affordable. Compe- tition tor students will do nothing but get more intense in the future. We are a tuition driven institution. How do we continue our great success of the last few years? 4. We need to develop a sense of community congruent with our mission and traditions, but also congruent with our many academic programs and diverse student population. 5. We need to develop governance structures that serve the complicated institution Mary Bald- win is today. 6. We must develop a modern college com- puter information system with internet access for all students and faculty, a network linking all faculty and staff, access to the database for faculty and staff, and modern equipment for teaching and learning. This is expensive; we must find ways to pay for it. 7. A final challenge is special to this year. In March 1997, we shall host a visiting team from the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Associa- tion of Colleges and Schools as part of our reaccreditation process. The college has been con- ducting a self-study as preparation for this visit and will be working hard to implement its recommen- dations beginning this fall. These are the challenges of our times. Our enrollment plan worked because we did our home- work, planned carefully, and applied ourselves to our plan over several years. We need to do the same thing to be as successful in meeting all the challenges I have outlined. You know that none of these challenges has a miraculous solution, but our strategic plan will be designed to work on all of them. We will keep moving forward, one step at a time, taking confi- dence from our successes of the last few years. So, on we go to meet the challenges... I wish you all a very good year. G|.ui:?

This year's group of students has the highest SAT scores in the last de- cade and were enrolled under a record low acceptance rate. Enrollment figures are calcu- lated on the number of traditional students (711), students in the Program for the Exceptionally Gifted (57) and the Virginia Women's Institute for Leadership (80), who are registered tor fall courses. Total MBC enrollment includes over 2,100 students when the figure includes gradu- ate students (72) and Adult De- gree Program Students (1,200) MBC President Dr. Cynthia H. Tyson said, "We are particu- larly pleased that this large enrollment is the result ot a broadening applicant pool. More students and their parents are recognizing the value of high academic standards, enhanced leadership opportunities and in- dividual attention from faculty in a single-sex environment." J 996 Doenges ArtistlSchohr Brings Wealth of Writing Experience to Campus Mary Baldwin College's first E 1 I : a b e t h K I r k p a t r i c k Doenges Dis- tinguished Vis- iting Artist/ Scholar is writer David Bradley. Bradley's 20- page resume includes two novels, over 100 published ar- ticles and a five-page list ot awards, fellow- ships and honors. A "PK" (preacher's kid) with a selt- proclaimed sarcastic sense of humor, Bra- dley admits his first novel. South Street, was a "compilation of the Clint Eastwood in him meeting the Richard Pryor side of him." South Street was published in 1975 by Grossman/Viking Press. Bradley fol- lowed that book with The Chaneysville In- cident in 1981. It received the 1982 PEN/ Faulkner Prize and an Academy Award from the American Academy and Institute ot Arts and Letters. Bradley has also published book chap- ters, book introductions, forewords, book reviews, magazine articles and essays. These have appeared in a wide variety of publications, from Sport to The Nation, from Philadelphia Magazine to Esquire, Redbouk and The New York Times. He has written profiles of Alice Walker and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, pieces about his home street in Philadelphia and his family. His current book-in-progress, The Bondage Hypothesis: Meditations on Race in America, is under contract to Viking/Penguin Press. "In the past nine years of my career, I have learned that people will pay me to learn. 1 enjoy the process of writing nonfiction. It is a challenge," he says. David Bradley received his bachelor's in creative writing from the University of Pennsylvania in 1972. He earned his master's in United States Studies from the University of London in 1974 and is a re- cipient of fellowships from the John Simon Guggenheim Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts. The Elizabeth Kirkpatrick Doenges Distinguished Visiting Artist/Scholar Pro- gram was established in 1994 to honor the late Mrs. Doenges, an alumna and trustee. The program was developed to benefit the entire college community by providing opportunities to learn from and interact with scholars and artists who are masters in their fields. Doenges artists and schol- ars will be drawn from within and outside of academia, from the performing or vi- sual arts, literature, sciences, social sci- ences or humanities. Each year the dean of the college will appoint the scholar or artist for from one semester up to a full year. Bradley was in residence on cam- pus from Oct. 29-Nov. 1. He gave a pub- lic reading, visited classes, and met with faculty. He will also be teaching on cam- pus during May Term 1997. College Inaugurates Two New Scholarships CENTRAL FIDELITY SCHOLARSHIP FOR MINORITIES Dacrie Brooks, daughter of Mr. Robert A. Gray of Grafton, VA, is the first recipient of the Central Fidelity Minority Scholarship at MBC. Ms. Brooks is a rising sophomore majoring in communica- tions. This scholarship is the first awarded from an endowment es- tablished in 1995 by the Central Fidelity National Bank. The award recognizes outstanding effort and achievement by a deserving stu- dent from the Commonwealth of Virginia. As the fund grows, addi- tional awards will be presented. VIRGINIA HEALTH SERVICES SCHOLARSHIP Heather Noelle Abernethy, a senior health care admmistration major from Verona, VA, has become the first recipient of the Virginia Health Services Scholarship at MBC. The new scholarship was established by Virgmia Health Services, Inc. of Newport News, VA, for health care administration majors interested in long-term care administra- tion. Each year for the next four years, a rising senior will be selected for the $1,000 merit-based award. Heather Abernethy is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Robert R. Abernethy. This summer she completed an e.xternship under the tu- telage of Bridgewater Retirement Community president John Garber. Dr. Steven Mosher, director of MBC's Health Care Administra- tion Program, said, "Heather is truly deserving of this award. She is a fine representative of the program and the college, in that she is a caring and sensitive person who truly wants to serve others." Wendy Klich-Satchell, an MBC alumna from the class of 1992 and vice president of operations for Virginia Health Services, was in- strumental in establishing this scholarship. Fall 1996 • The Mary Balbwin College Magazine Campus News NEWS still Among the Best Mary Baldwin College was ranked 3rd among regionally-ranked liberal arts col- leges in the South in the 1 996 U. S. News & World Report's annual guide to "America's Best Colleges." Last year, MBC ranked first in the magazine's an- nual ranking of colleges. The ranking considers academic reputation, finan- cial resources, retention, alumni satis- faction, faculty resources and student selectivity. This year, only Lyon College and Emory and Henry College were ranked higher than Mary Baldwin in a regional category including over 400 colleges and universities. This year's honor marked the fourth straight top-10 rank- ing for Mary Baldwin College. New Director Takes Helm of Master of Arts in Teaching Dr. Elizabeth Roberts has taken the helm of the MBC Master of Arts in Teaching program, succeeding Dr. Mary Gendernalik Cooper, the program's first director. Dr. Roberts comes to MBC from Emory University, where she has served as assistant professor of reading and language arts since 1 993. Prior to work- ing at Emory, she was an assistant pro- fessor and director of the Teacher Edu- cation Program at Agnes Scott College. At Agnes Scott, she was campus co- ordinator for the Ford Foundation Teacher Scholars Program and won the Outstanding Dissertation Award from the International Reading Association in 1989. Dr. Roberts earned her Ph.D. from Emory in educational leadership with a focus on reading education in 1 988 and received Emory's Outstanding Disserta- tion Award in 1989. She earned her M.A.T. and her bachelor's degree from Emory, as well. She has worked as an elementary school teacher and was awarded the Ford Foundation Scholar Award. According to Dean of the College Dr. James Lott, Dr. Roberts was chosen from a field of over 60 strong applicants. She joined the MBC staff in September. MBC Appoints Director of African-American Affairs Andrea Cornett- Scott of Roanoke, VA, has been hired as MBC's director of African American affairs. She will provide support and program- ming for African American students and consult with departments across the college regarding African American affairs. She will report to the college's dean of students. Cornett-Scott has served as co-di- rector of Your Place After School in Harrisonburg, VA; as coordinator of the Peer Helper Program and Educational Skills Program at James Madison Uni- versity; and as assistant to the president on minority affairs, and later director of minority affairs at Monmouth College in Monmouth, IL. She is also a pastor at the Ebenezer A.M.E. Church in Roanoke, VA. "The duties of the director of Afri- can American affairs will be evolving as I assess the current needs at Mary Baldwin College in terms of the minor- ity student population and the campus environment as a whole," says Cornett-Scott. "My initial goals include developing an on-going survival skills program for first-year minority stu- dents, creating and implementing a strategy to enhance minority student leadership, cultivating an African American alumnae community, work- ing with admissions staff to support admissions strategies for the recruit- ment of minorities, providing emotional support for students of color, assess- ing and supporting the academic needs of minority students, engaging the college in discussions concerning diversity, providing opportunities for African American cultural enrichment and promoting opportunities for cross- cultural exchanges." MaiT Baldwin CoUese 20 \j^lnnkersaiy Adult Degree Program is 20 Years Old Innovation is a tra- dition at Mary Bald- win College. Twenty years ago, the col- lege opened an adult program for MBC students who had never gradu- ated, and the bold program quickly broadened its scope to permit both ma- ture women and men the opportunity to tailor their degree work around their careers. Growing from only eight students that first year, MBC's Adult Degree Pro- gram currently enrolls over 1,200 stu- dents and boasts 1,100 alumni. Each ADP student brings to the program a wealth of experience that greatly facili- tates the learning process. ADP offers courses through the main campus of- fice and through four regional offices across the state. ADP alumni have supported other ADP students through contributions to The Mary Baldwin College Magazine • Fall 1996 Campus News moreNEWS the college's ADP Loyalty Scholar- ship Fund. In 1995, five $1,000 scholarships were awarded to de- serving ADP students. VWIL Continues to Thrive If you're looking for the VWIL Of- fice, it has moved into Taylor House at 237 Sycamore Street. Returning sophomore VWIL students will also be in a new place, rooming to- gether in Tullidge Hall. The 44 VWIL freshmen will be mixed in with other freshmen in Woodson Hall, as they were last year Two new courses will be intro- duced this year — History and Theories of Leadership and Eth- ics, Community & Leadership, Sophomores will take these classes in the fall and spring, re- spectively. Having second-year students allows the program to begin using mentors. Each new student has been assigned to an upperclass VWIL student, who will serve as her mentor and take responsibility for helping her be successful in the program.

Organized into five committees, they drafted a report which evaluates the college's strengths and weaknesses and makes recommendations for im- provements. The draft undergoes a pro- cess of hearings and revisions this fall. Next spring, a visiting committee of fac- ulty and staff from other colleges will come to Mar^' Baldwin College to re- view our study and make independent recommendations and suggestions. All recommendations and suggestions will be forwarded to appropriate college committees for implementation. The internal process and the com- mittee visit provide a focused review of the state of the college and the issues which engage us as we move into the 2 1st century. As we carrv' out the recommen- dations and suggestions, we position our- selves well for the challenges and oppor- tunities to come. The draft finds much to congratulate: enrollment the largest ever, innovative programs solidly based on a tradition of excellent liberal arts education, a well qualified faculty and stEift, a clear and widely accepted mis- sion, and graduates who find that we are carrving out our mission effectively. And it identifies some challenges: finding enough money to provide learning re- sources, salaries and financial aid appro- priate to a nationally ranked college; honoring diversity and cultivating community within a diverse and chang- ing faculty, staff and student body; and refining faculty and administrative pro- cesses amid multiple programs and rapid growth. The process will end with the college's reaccreditation by the Commis- sion on Colleges of the Southern Asso- ciation of Colleges and Schools. Self- study is the foundation of SACS's pro- cess for reaccreditation and is required every 10 years. According to SACS, "Accreditation is principally concerned with improvement of educational qual- ity' .. . and the assurance to the public that regional institutions meet estab- lished standards." Former Trustee Andrew Jackson Brent dies Andrew ]acksonBrdnt, J 9/ 8 "Jack Brent's accomplishments will live on for decades to come," says J. Stewart Br^'an 111, publisher of Th^ Richmond Trnies' Dispatch. "Throughout his successful law career, Jack offered his organirational skills to many community civic groups involved in education, economic development and other activities." Former chair oi the MBC Board of Trustees Andrew Jackson "Jack" Brent, 77, of Henrico died Saturday, June 8. He was a former partner with the Richmond law firm of Christian, Barton, Epps, Brent & Chappell and the retired director, general counsel and secretan* of Media General Inc., the parent company of T/ie Richmond Times-Dispatch. Brent ser\'ed on the Mary Baldwin Board of Tnistees from 1969 to 1989. He chaired the board twice, from 1976 to 1979 and from 1985 to 1989. During his board tenure he provided direction and counsel to eight key board committees. In 1990, the college presented an Honorary' Doctorate of Humane Letters degree to Brent for his "clarit\- of vision, exceptional patience and tact, unmatched skill, ex- traordinarv' abilits' to moderate and rec- oncile and for his leadership in times of opportunity- and growth." Jack Brent was named attorney for Richmond Newspapers Inc. in 1958. He was elected director, general coun- sel and secretary in 1966, and he held the same positions with Media Gen- eral Inc. after its formation in 1965. In December 1992, Mr. Brent retired from Media General and his law firm for health reasons, but he continued to ser\-e the law firm as counsel. A native of Richmond. Brent re- ceived his undergraduate degree from The Universit\- of \'irginia and graduated from the law school in 1941. He began his law practice in Richmond in 1946 and became a partner in 1949. Brent was considered an expert in corporate and municipal bonds as well as in corporate law. Jack Brent's civic responsibilities and involvement were far reaching.

Traditional soiisj (s like great poetry in that it doesn't rei'eal itself completely on first hearin^^. A great song needs several exposures to shoiv its dimensions , its shapeliness . its transcendent beauty, ami to relate mysteri- ously t(i the hciirer's psyche. h has been my good fortune to have spent much of my life in search of traditional songs in remote manuscripts where they have slept for centuries , and in equally private sources where families still sing the old songs for pleasure and comfort. Y earliest exf>erience with song was betore I can remember, though I do recollect my mother's small voice singing, "Go tell Aunt Rhody" when I was too tired and measly to go to sleep at about the age of three. My grandmother Col- lins and my father played piano, mostly Chopin. I remember when they got a new songbook, Cecil Sharp s American edition of folksongs for children, with piano ac- companiments; I devoured it cover to cover, aged ten. Shortly after that I was admitted to a tine male choir, which re- hearsed two afternoons a week — with choirboy bloody fights in the churchyard afterward — and sang for two services on Sundays. That experience opened up the whole Episcopal hymnbook, with its quota of goodies. My parents bought a secondhand pump organ, a harmonium, and I taught myself to play the hymns I liked, my fa- vorite being Teschner s 1 Tth-century tune to "All gloTy, laud, and honor." In adoles- cence, I got peer-pressed and tried to fiddle modem dance music well enough to be tolerated in a very amateur band. I wanted to imitate Paul Whiteman's and Guy Lombardi's 78 rpm records. Those records went with me to Yale. There was lots of singing in the freshman glee club and in a pick-up quartet, but what was really "divoon," as we described ecstasy in those days, was an illegal (it being Prohibition days) beer parlor just off campus. I later learned that the good dean ot ^ale College, aware of what was happening there, had gotten the New Haven police to leave Turtle's, as the joint was called, alone. Our singing in that place was fairly continuous and undirected as the evening progressed, yet there was a tacit understanding that no one talked above the singing. The songs were mostly tavern song?, many of them stock glee club numbers of 50 years before. And ot course there was the compulsory" limerick gen- erator, "The Hedgehog Song," a splendid epic of the uses of the hedgehog at Yale and Har\"ard, with stanzas about a gener- ous Indian maiden and about deviate kings from Siam and Peru. Turtle's was the best course 1 had freshman yean it was also the only course I was ready for and the only one 1 remem- ber in any detail, that is, the songs. It was a kind of prerequisite, and nothing that happened to me the other years in New Haven would have made much sense without that wonderfully beery and lyric loundation. My later years at Yale included a chance discovery on the shelves of the li- brary: William Chappell s Popular Miisic of die Olden Time, a large collection of British folksongs from publications of three centuries. It greatly expanded my Cecil Sharp and Tuttle horizons. By the time I did a term paper on "Chaucer and Music," heard a concert by Edmund Fellowes' English Singers, and looked at Carl Sandburg's An American Songfcag, I was beginning to sense a Song Tradition, one that could be traced back to the Middle Ages, not only to Chaucer, but also to the French medieval court com- posers, the troubadours and trouveres, and to their contemporaries, the playwrights of liturgical music-drama. When I returned to Yale for graduate work, I roamed the libraries" shelves, searching for more, not just the verses, but also the music to them so the verses could be sung. I caught up with Robert Herrick, the 17th-century CavaUer poet, inany of whose poems were set to music by coUe- gial musicians at the Caroline court. Most circulated orally and were preser\^ed in manuscript commonplace books; a few were published in Herrick's time by Pla\=ford. I edited all that could be found in England and America. Still at Yale, my research for a disser- tation on "Chaucer's Understanding of Music" led me to outline a history of En- glish music in Chaucer's 14th century, none such having been attempted before. Part of the trouble was the notation of the music: musicologists in the 1930s were far from agreeing about its accurate transcrip- tion; no sensible musicologist would risk his reputation in such a wild-eyed en- deavor. Being young and not cautious — or at least not as cautious as a musicolo- gist — I struggled along, identified some 14th-centurv songs in The CanterbitTf Tales, and did enough to satisfy the Yale English Department with my dissertation. Before I left Yale, 1 took Professor Karl Young's graduate course in Drama of the Mediev^al Church and encountered an exciting fund of dramatic songs in the 12th- and 13th-centur\- religious music- dramas. Later, reading proof for his great two-volume collection of these plays, I gently chided him about the lack of mu- sical notation. He offered me his exten- sive photostatic files of manuscripts he had found all over Europe it I would spend the next ten years editing for pubhcation the music of the plays. I wasn't quite ready for that and very regretfully turned him down. Thirty years later, long after Young's death, I went back to the sub-basement of the Yale library. Abetted by son Hetcher and Linda Dolly (Hanmiock) '62, 1 set to work making photocopies of his extraor- dinary collection. The photocopies are now in my office at The Oaks. They have resulted in my editing for the University Press or Virginia a musical anthology of 16 medieval music-dramas in 1976 and a volume on medieval productions of those plays, hosting week-long workshops for f»ost-doctoral scholars at The Oaks in 1979 and 1981, creating and editing the Crown Light series of the plays in sing- able English translations, producing/di- recting nearly all of the 16 plays in the anthology, and making a professional quality 16mm film of The Visit to the Sep- tdcher in the French abbey where it origi- nated 800 years ago. But I get ahead of myself. In 1934, my wife Margaret and I left academia for Arthurdale, a homestead project in West Virginia, where I worked for Eleanor Roosevelt and Bernard Baruch (what a pair!). This was a government-funded experiment aimed at relocating and find- ing jobs for unemployed miners. When that project broke up two years later, it was a sort of Pyrrhic v^ictory for us. A goodly collection of West Virginia folksongs came out of those two years. The homesteaders were very much in touch with the Song Tradition and provided a core group for one of the earliest folk- music festivals. The Mary B.>kLOVc« College M-.caz From Archurdale, we went to Elon Colle.^e in 1936 and found one of the great carriers ot American folksong, Mrs. J.U. N e w m a n , wife ot the professor of Greek and Latin, from whose sing- ing 1 re- corded, with a Li- Hrary ot Congress Presto re- c o r d i n g machine, 83 hively songs. She knew and had sung these songs to her stone-deat children, who as adults dropped in to watch the re- cordings and occasionally urged her to sing this one or that one for me. She confessed that she always sang these songs to comfort herself and her children when they were young because her husband pre- ferred the company of his Greek, Latin, and theology. Throughout the years, 1 have taken it upon myself to exhume songs from European manuscripts or from American singers in the oral tradition, hke Mrs. Newman, al- ways with the express purpose of making the songs able to be sung today, bringing them to the glare of urban America. These diggings have gone from 5th-century B.C. Greek to Chaucerian. They include some WO southern folksongs depos- ited m the Library of Congress' archive, a published collection of North Carolina playparty songs and games, and a volume of 50 trouba- dour-trouvere songs. And the work goes on. Lately I have branched out to set W.B. Yeats' Crazy ]ane cycle to music, and have created my own settings tor songs from seven of Shakespeare's plays. The organic nature ot song has deep roots, and is clearly basic to pre- human and human emotional ex- pression and to the development of a sense of beauty. We can only re- gret that the prehistoric caves ot 20,000 years ago were not equipped to record the songs that we posit as sung there in cathedral-like acous- tics, surrounded by the vibrant mu- rals ot horses, lions and bison. The oldest songs on record are in cuneiform on clay tablets from Iraq 2,500 years ago, almost like yes- terday compared to the cave draw- ings. And these songs are only half recorded; there is no cuneitorm mu- sic notation. Actually, no need for notational symbols was found in any period until the oral tradition of song — person-to-person, mouth-to-ear — was supplemented by the wish to transmit song to a distance in time or space. Professional singers — min- strels, jongleurs, harpers, singers to the lyre — had no need for notation; the words and music were in their heads, in quantities incredible today. We have, alas, no notational ap- proximations on record before a few hundred years ago. Yet we yearn with Sir Thomas Browne (in his 17th- century Religio Medici) to know what song the sirens sang to seduce Ulysses in Homer's Odyssey. And even more to hear what Hebrew chant-melody Jesus on the cross sang in his psalmic agony, "My God, my God, why hast Thou forsaken me?" This situation may tempt us to feel that modern professional ex- pression, with its symphony orches- tras and synthesirers, is vastly su- perior to anything done in all but the immediate past. Not so. The mere survival of the Song Tradition throughout the centuries speaks for its innate strength and importance to all of us. And that tradition car- ries on into our time, as a former student ot mine, Custer LaRue (Haws) '74, demonstrates in her continued on page 13 Collins's Honored for Commitment to Arts and the Community On Sunday, August 1 1 , Rev. Bill Painter ot the Folk Art Revival Society presented Margaret and Fletcher Collins with the 1996 Friends of the Folk Arts Award tor their lifelong com- mitment to the performing arts in the Shenandoah Valley. It was appropriate that the award was presented during the 18th Oak Grove Folk Music Festival, which is sponsored by Theater Wagon and held every year at the Oak Grove Theater. This outdoor theater was founded liy Margaret and Fletcher Collins on their "Pennyroyal Farm," 32 years ago. Fletcher and Margaret Collins will also he honored by Mary Baldwin College during the May 1997 graduation exercises, when they will be presented with the Algernon Sydney Sullivan Non-Student Award. The Algernon Sydney Sullivan Non- Student Award is one of the highest honors Mary Baldwin College bestows. Through the assistance of the New York Southern Soci- ety, the college has presented the award to a member of the college community since 1933. Recipients are those who have best demonstrated fine spiritual qualities, a nohle character and unselfish service to the broad community. Fletcher Collins taught in the MBC Theatre Department from 1946 to 1977. He and his wife Margaret were instrumental in establishing the Marian Stanley Wilkinson Acting Award for MBC students. 1 99b Friends uf ihc Folk Am .Auwd Fall 1996 • The Mary Balpwin College Magazine Campus News FACULTY/STAFF HIGHLIGHTS HONORS/AWARDS/DEGREES ADP Assistant Professor of Political Sci- ence Dr. Jean Donovan Gilman com- pleted her Ph.D. in Arrrerican government at The University of Virginia in August.

She has juggled family, studies and a particularly demanding fourth-grade class without faltering. She draws on hef- deep love and respect for children and her , belief that learning is exciting. ' Dr IVIary Gendernalik Cooper, the first '■ director of the IVIaster of Arts in Teaching pro- - gram at Mary Baldwin, says Davis' person^ enthusiasm for learning is contagious. "Shi can help her students see the wondermeri of gunk in a pond and the wonderment of c,. .. . mathematics formula. She has a way of helping kids create their own ques- tions, so teaching and learning in her classroom aren't routine." Davis, who has just completed her first year as a teacher, says the work was hard. Albemarle County, where she teaches, has designed its own curriculum and requires teachers to draw upon resources other than textbooks. So Davis put many hours into creating hands-on activities and alternative learning sources. The advantage of this type of curriculum, Davis explains, is that she is able to match it to her students. "I would not want to teach just out of textbooks," she says. She describes her teaching style as hands-on and child-centered, geared to the responses of her children. For instance, during an environ- mental study unit a vegetarian student protested hatching chicks, so Davis researched and set up an incubator for quail eggs. She says the idea of repopulating the native quail in the area appealed to her The children followed the eggs' embryonic development, which was facilitated by a quirky candling device Davis put together involving a Velveeta cheese box, an overhead projector and black construction pa- per. At one point, the school experienced an electrical blackout; the incu- bator was rushed over to a student's home, but the eggs' metabolism slowed down. Subsequently the moment of triumph arrived two days late, which serendipitously happened to be during a science open house. Plants were on display all over the classroom, parents were milling about, and the eggs chose that moment to start hatching. "There is a huge reward in watching kids get that 'ah!' expressionon their faces." Davis says. "One child, whenever he discovered some brand new thing, had this expression of his mouth going down and his eyebrows going up I live for that in the classroom." "RliIc number line," Dr. Viri;inia Royster Francisco '64, professor of tlieatre, tells her class ot ttiture teachers, "the arts should not hurt the ehildren. The arts should he enjoyahle and rewarding; tor e\ervone." 1 ha\-e just arrived at Deming Hall to observe the class In- Ljuiry into the Arts, team taught by Dr. Francisco and Susan Edelman. Following the sound of music to the Fletcher Collins Theatre, I come upon the class listening to the slow and tlutey "Canyon Trilogy" by Carlos Nakae. The pace picks up quickly. "Now we will play some games," grins Francisco. "Pick a card." Each of the eight students (seven women, one man) chooses one and then has a tew moments to decide how to act out the idiom on the card. One student pantomimes binoculars with her hands and jLimps around the room. "Look before yoLi leap," the others guess ^luicklv. The next student pretends to throw something up in the air. .■\tter many wrong guesses, the others finally get "hit the ceil- ing." "You put a lot of energy into that," Dr. Francisco tells him. "That's what we want to see when we see an arts program in a school. Lots of energy." The next game in\'olves choosmg a card which names a simple machine and acting out that machine in groups of three. Susan Edelman and Francisco draft me to he the end of a pulley. "What are kids learning here?" they quiz the students after each group has its turn. "Why would you use exercises like these in a classroom.'" The answers are many: teamwork, focus, communication, creativity, improvisation, willingness to take a risk, being able to say when you need help, how to support one another, problem solving, planning. Pre-leaming skills, one might argue. And, in- deed, Francisco points out that, according to research, students studying the arts do better in other subjects. Later in the morning, Susan Edelman stands before a grand piano. "What's the one thing music is?" she starts out. "Sound." "What's sound?" "Vibration." Susan Edelman has taught music at all levels, from elemen- t.\ry through college. Edelman and Francisco's teaching styles are a study in contrasts. Edelman speaks softly and uses small, almost tentative gestures as she teaches. Francisco uses big move- ments and has a stage voice. The two have been friends since graduate school, and the rapport between them is obvious. "We understand each other," says Edelman. "Ginny gathers up the loose ends that 1 leave trail- ing behind me. She is strong where I am weak and vice \'ersa. F.^LL 1996 • The M.^ry B.'Mdwin College M.^gazine mat's Unique Brand of Education ANDY JOHNSON '94 MAT Midlife Opportunity By Sarah Cox We balance each other." The goal of the class, Edelman goes on to explain, is to give students the tools they need to use the arts in their classrooms. "With all the arts funding cuts, this is an imperative class for teachers." She teaches the music and art components of the class, Francisco the theatre and dance. Edelman and Francisco both talk a lot about art as process, continually reassuring students that there is no right or wrong. "If there are three things I know about life," says Francisco, "they are birth, death and failure. Arts teach students that it's OK to take risks and fail. Arts also help people understand what it means to be a tiny human in a great universe. They give students the opportunity to think outside the lines, the boundaries." The Master of Arts in Teaching program was founded at Mary Baldwin in 1992. One of its unique aspects is its utilization of teaching partners. Every class is taught by an MBC professor and an experienced K- 1 2 classroom teacher. This allows students to go into a content area in depth, but also to relate the knowl- edge they are acquiring to the classroom. Eleven classes were offered during the 1996 summer term — seven in Staunton and four in Richmond. Saturday, evening, and summer classes make it possible for classroom teachers to earn their master's degrees while still working. Other students have the opportunity to enter the program without licensure and earn a teacher's license at the same time they earn a master's degree. Anne Thornton, an MAT student from Charlottesville, VA, is a violinist in the Blue Ridge Community Orchestra and worked as a computer teacher at St. Anne's Belfield School in Char- lottesville for a year. Although she enjoyed teaching computer classes, she wanted to be able to teach math and science as well. She estimates it will take her a total of 20 months to fin- ish the program going part time. "The concept ot cooperating teachers is fabulous," she says. "It helps us keep our feet on the ground by bringing us back to how we're going to make it work in grades K-12." On another day. Dr. Pamela Richardson Murray, associate professor of education, team teaches Integrated Language Arts with Peggy Roberson. Roberson has been teaching in the Staun- ton City Schools for 18 years, 10 years in the fourth grade, and the last eight years as the resource teacher for elementary' gifted students. She starts the class by modeling a form of teaching called Directed Reading, Thinking Activity. It is a way of making stu- dents more active readers by getting them involved in asking questions and making predictions about what will happen next in a story. Roberson passes out an excerpt from a book. The class continued cm page 1 2 Tragedy brought Andy Johnson to a turning point In his life. He was work- ing as an architectural conservator at Monticello when, on Johnson's r^ 40th birthday, his 19-year-old niece \^ was killed by a drunk driver In a car iJ|R- ^ accident. Thousands came to her fu- 'i' — neral. "She had touched all those >#■ people. At Monticello. I wasn't work- ing with people as much as I wanted i to. I was 40 years old and not where >_ ™ I wanted to be. Some people call it a \ - ^ £ mid-life crisis. I saw it as a mid-life ; a opportunity." I Johnson discovered the Mas- ■^'"- =■ ter of Arts in Teaching program at Mary Baldwin, which helped him to see that "teaching is a process of be- coming the teacher that you can be." Now, as a fifth grade teacher at Crozet Elementary School, he feels he has found a purpose. "To help someone see what it is to be human. That's one opportunity you have in being a teacher. You can model being human." Johnson Is able to draw from an eclectic toolbag of skills in his teaching. He has a B.A. in studio art. with a concentration in printmaking and ceramics. He has been a press photographer in New Jersey and an emergency medical technician in Utah, where he also started a deco- rative furniture painting business with a friend. When he and his wife relocated to Charlottesville. VA, Johnson accepted a job as part of Monticello's maintenance staff. "Not too far into this job, Monticello re- alized what they had," says Dr. Mary Gendernalik Cooper, former di- rector of the MAT program. Not only does Johnson have a restoration inclination, she explains, but he loves research and "feels learning is a liberating enterprise." In his classroom. Johnson teaches the skills of recordkeeping and notetaking that he learned as a medical technician and the art of jour- nal writing he learned as a press photographer. As an artist, he learned how various materials can be used to reach an end result, as well as how to focus and center himself, skills he uses as a teacher. And he shows his students how to become investigative learners, an ability he honed as a restoration specialist. Johnson has found many ways to bring the real world into the classroom, says Gendernalik Cooper. "Sense-making is paramount to him. He teaches in a measured way, as a potter would — he teaches that creativity isn't chaos . . . that there's continued on page 12 The Mary Baldwin College Magazine • F.all 1996 ALEXANDRA DAVIS cow. It was a classroom that was deemed a chal- lenging group. Behavioral issues had followed some of the children since l<indergarten. "I struc- tured my teaching style to meet their needs." Davis also drew upon the behavioral plans she was required to develop during the MAT program. It worked well, she says, describing it as "not your typical behavior modification program, but one where the children take responsibility for their own behavior and consider it ahead of time I worked with a positive discipline, complimenting them on their behavior" Davis is a natural nurturer, but she's also worked hard on becoming an educator. She is in the middle of raising two sons, 12 and nine years old. She helped take care of her husband's grandfather for 13 years, ran a play group for two-year-olds out of her home, and eventually became a teaching assistant in her youngest son's kindergarten class. Then, after her husband's grandfather passed away, she started her teaching education. It took her three years plus summers to complete the MAT pro- gram, longer than average, but the extra time allowed her to have more practicums (in-class experiences). She ended up doing 50 hours of classroom teaching in four different grade lev- els and emerged convinced that she wanted to teach kindergarten She found a fourth-grade position at Virginia L. Murray Elementary School in Ivy VA, where she had done her last practicum. "I was infatu- ated with tiny children in classrooms just begin- ning school, but there wasn't a [kindergarten] po- sition. Fourth grade was absolutely more than I ever dreamed," she says, detailing their aca- demic year — the study of Virginia history and geography, sentence formation, reading "good, meaty chapter books," and studying the struc- ture of the earth. Gendernalik Cooper says Davis' persever- ance is one of her greatest strengths. In a class- room "filled with the whole gamut of mood swings, backgrounds and experiences, she has encountered things that would have discour- aged and redirected others. Her attitude is to figure it out, rearrange, and redirect. She's not a pedant: she's very much engaging and initiat- ing and helping the students figure out their own roadmaps." Although friends of Davis have claimed that she was born with the ability to teach children, Gendernalik Cooper says Davis has deliberately and intentionally become a well-educated per- son who "deserves credit for all she has done to become that." But even Davis was taken by sur- prise at her reaction to a classroom full of nine- year-olds. "Although I had prepared and pre- pared for this amount of work and challenge and effort, I never, ever dreamed how much I would fall in love with the children. At this age, they want to be so grown up, but they keep accidentally calling you 'Mom.' I tell them, 'I can't help it, but that's an automatic hug.' At age 40, 1 am exactly where I want to be in my life." ANDY JOHNSON omt. line and form and thought " Johnson says its important to him to remember that he's teaching children, rather than teaching science or math or English. He believes that students, no matter what their abilities, need to relate what they're learning to concrete things they can see and touch, so he uses models when describing the human body and has his students examine their own bones. "I look at learning as discovering, rather than covering. That's what learning through inquiry is." He also uses humor and lets his students know he respects them, because "then they respect you." Rachel Williamson, a student from Johnson's first year of teaching, presented Johnson with a letter at the end of the year detailing what he could to do to be a better teacher. "I gave him a write-up of how I see things," she says, adding that he took it well and talked to her like a "regular person." She and he both agreed that the math book should be changed. Johnson continues to correspond with her. "He said the teacher learns more from the student than the student learns from the teacher. He was quite serious about that He really listened to me." TANDEM TEACHING am goe.s through the process of reading a few pages, then stopping and making predic- tions, then reading on. Next, Roherson plays a video showing a master teacher using this technique in her classroom. Murray leads a critique of the video following its showing, then divides the class of eight students into two groups for role playing. A "teacher" is chosen to lead the rest tif the group using the method they have been discussing. Murray later gives an assignment to write a lesson plan usmg this method and explains how to do a lesson plan. Murray and Roherson have a similar style of teaching and work in a comple- mentary way. Having taught three courses together so far, they are clearly comfort- able collaborating. Karen Hurt, the student employee/circulation super\'isor at MBC's Grafton Li- brary, has been a part-time student in the MAT program for two years. A fan of the concept of teaching partners, she says, "The classroom teachers have enriched the classes by bringing in anecdotal first-hand knowledge of real situations. They bring a wealth of personal narrative to classes." Twenty-eight students graduated from the MAT program in May, and 72 students are currently enrolled in the program. "Teaching partners," says Hurt, "bring a realism to our classes that prepares us to go OLit into the classroom our- selves as teachers." 12 Fall 1996 • The M.arv Balpwin College IvIagazine FACULTY STAFF HIGHLIGHTS com.

Well, yes, the apartment is on the third floor. But the staircases are shorter than the ones in Kable, really!"). Since I live a mere 30-minute drive from school, I've enlisted three cars to get all my stuff there. I'm a little embarrassed to admit that all three of them ate full. Sunday, August 25 - MBC Security Office 2 p.m. I've picked up my keys from Mr. Kelly, and now the moving in can com- mence. Even though an arduous task lies before me today, I have to say that I'm more excited than ever about returning to school. Having had three years to anticipate these final months at Mary Baldwin, I'm ready to relish everything. I'm a mix of emotions, feeling relief and nervousness at the same time. I can't help thinking back to my first days at MBC, and the thoughts and fears I was experiencing then. What will my roommate be like? Where will I fit in here? Who will become my best friends? Why did I bring all this stuff, and how am I going to get it all up to my room? (Okay, so maybe not everything has changed.) Now, however, I'm wondering things like, will I be successful at stu- dent teaching? What will I do after graduation? How can I enjoy every mo- ment possible that I have left with my friends here? Oh, and why have I accumulated all this stuff, and how am I going to get it all the way up there? Sunday, August 25 - Woodrow Terrace Apartments 2:15 p.m. I get to the apartment and find that my roommate, Laura Ashley, oops, I mean Laura McCarter, has moved in. She has already brought in fresh flowers and has things looking casually elegant. Or, maybe it's elegantly casual, I'm not sure. I think of the freshman who will be moving into Spencer and Woodson in a few days and appreciate the relative luxury, knowing that one day those freshman will get their turn, too. Surviay, August 25 - Woodrow Terrace Apartments 3 p.m. Lots of unpacking and trips to Wal-Mart await before I'm really settled, but at least everything is moved in. Already, it feels like home. The kitchen that had seemed cramped on first inspection is actually cozy; the tiny balcony is quaint. We already have tons of ideas on how to make this space that has belonged to so many of our MBC predecessors uniquely. definitively our own. I know that these rooms will see all-night study ses- sions, as well as all-night parties. Friends will come here for late night chats, but early morning breakfast, too. We will get sick of these walls when we're snowed in and long to get back to them on days filled with meetings and classes. Sunday, August 25 - the apartment 7 p.m. Everyone's gone now, and I have a chance to think about this whirlwind of a day. I can't believe the time has passed so quickly; it feels like 1 just got here. Whether I like it or not, I know that this hectic day has been in many ways a premonition of the year that stretches before me. Hours and days will slip by almost without notice, whether 1 am prepared or not. Just as this day has flown by, so have the last three years. Milestones like Charter Day, ]r. Dads, and Christmas Cheer have been anticipated and realized, as well as scores of subtler, but still significant happenings, like long walks around Staunton and the deep conversation which ac- companied them. Weekends spent in with good movies and even better friends. Classes that changed the way I see the world. Escapades to other schools with a crew of co-conspirators. Road trips made memorable not by the destination reached, but the company kept on the way. Willful pro- crastination in the interest of comforting, celebrating, or just being with friends and hall mates. I hold all these varied memories — large and small — dear, because they, along with the adventures left untold or as yet un- experienced, comprise my MBC experience. In some ways, I envy those freshman who have yet to arrive. For though they may not have a room as nice as ours, they do have something I don't; four years that wait before them like glorious blank pages to be filled by all their experiences. My jealousy, however, only lasts for about a second. I know that I possess something just as precious. The experiences I have already had, though they can never be relived, have helped me to figure out who I am, and who the people and things are that are really important to me. And I wouldn't trade that for all the time in the world. The Mary Baldwin College Magazine • Fall 1996 15 Death row activist Murphy Davis 71 keeps the faith in her battle with a rare cancer For nearly 20 years, the Rev. Murphy Davis helped condemned prisoners face death. She prayed with inmates. She chal- lenged them. She fought for them. And when they were executed, she buried them. Then, last year, the 48-year-old At- lanta minister began her own death watch. She was dying from a rare form of cancer. "I really wanted to see my daughter grow up," Davis says. "I wanted what ev- erybody else wants, to grow old, be with my family and have some sense of completion with my work." Death was not an abstract issue for Davis. She'd taken part in at least 45 death watches — staying with death row inmates during their final hours. She's known nationally for her commitment. "Murphy is one of my heros," says Sis- ter Helen Prejean, whose autobiographical book, Dead Man Walking, was turned into a critically acclaimed film. "She embodies what an intelligent woman with taith, spunk, and commitment does." But even heroes need someone to lean on. As cancer invaded her body, Davis lost 20 pounds. Her hair fell out. She could barely walk. Then something unexpected happened. Davis found life on death row. "It was a miracle to me," Davis says today. A death row inmate would become her minister. SERVICE WITH A SMILE A steady drizzle fell on a group ot home- less men gathering outside a sprawling brick building in Midtown. Three homeless men, wearing green garbage bags as makeshift raincoats, huddled under the building's back porch. They were waiting tor a meal inside. The building is the place Davis, her husband, the Rev. Ed Loring, and their 16- year-old daughter, Hannah, call home. The Open Door Community is also the place many ot Atlanta's homeless call home. jazz musician and farmer Open Door Communny raident Sye Pressley and Murphy Davis '71 . The nature ot her vocation is grim, but Davis is not. With her soothing southern drawl, she exudes warmth as she chats with those who have come by for a meal. She laughs loud and otten. A chorus of greet- ings follow her as she walks down the hall, "Hey Murphy!" "Murphy!" It is not by accident that Davis minis- ters not only to the homeless and death row prisoners, but also battered women. Chris- tians are commanded to forge relationships with "the least of these" — the prisoner, the homeless, those deemed worthless by soci- ety, she said. In 1981, she and Loring co- founded the Open Door Community shel- ter to heed that call. 16 Fall 1996 • The Mary Baldwjn College Magazine Contributions to Mary Baldwin College July 1,1995 'June 30, 1996 R emarkable things are happening at Mary Baldwin College — thanks to the support of our generous benefactors: MBC alumnae, parents, friends, trustees, volunteers, faculty, staff, students, corporations and foundations. Mary Baldwin was ranked 3rd among 423 liberal arts college in the South by U.S. News & World Report's 1996 "Americas Best Colleges.

And she was so supportive outside of class. The teacher/student hierarchy didn't really exist. She was like a fiiend. The entire facult)' supported my graduate school plans.

Areas where I was weak, she was patient yet firm that I could do better, and she worked with me showing me that I could achieve whatever I set my mind to. In areas where I had strengths, she never hesitated to praise and offer continued support. I am fortunate that I had a mentor like Judy who not only was there for me during my years at Mary Baldwin, but who continues to be someone that I know is supportive of me in my life and ambitions today."

Terry Carolyn Geyer Timmons Lisa Turner Robert A Warren Aremita R. Watson Susan J. Watson Beverley Brockenbrough Watts Lynne Woodward Loring led her to death row activism. They married in 1975 after meeting in semi- nary. The U.S. Supreme Court reinstated the death penalty the following year. Loring, already a death row activist, took Davis to hear the mothers of death row prisoners. "What those mamas did for me was to articulate the widening circle of tragedy that's caused by the death penalty," she said. "This was a place where I needed to take a personal stand." Davis visited her first death row inmate in 1977. Many people dismiss death row activ- ists as liberal do-gooders. Yet Davis' opposi- tion to the death penalty is more complex. A disproportionate number of poor black man receive the sentence. She believes the death penalty does nothing to deter crime or remove the anguish of victims' families. "When we've been hurt, revenge is a very natural human emotion," she said. "But if you don't at some point move beyond that, you cannot heal." Her goal is to try to help prisoners re- cover something. "Their capacity to be hu- man," she said. "An important part of be- ing a human being is to take responsibility for your actions and their consequences." Early in her ministry, Davis attempted to reach out to some of the victims' fami- lies, but stopped. She said lawyers represent- ing the families often kept her away because they felt she would interfere with their cases. Death row has many depressing turns, but the death watch is the worst. The sus- pense of last-minute appeals can run a pris- oner and his family ragged. "You die a thou- sand deaths on death watch," Davis said. And when the appeal is lost, the prisoner's last conversation with his family remains awkward. People reminisce and apologize to one another. Even if a prisoner receives a last-minute reprieve, he knows he will have to take the same journey again. Her faith protects her from the despair on death row. "If I believed what happens in prison is the last word, I'd be in pretty sad shape." Michael Radelet, a Florida death pen- alty scholar who has participated in at least 100 death watches, said many death row activists believe they have no choice. "It's like if you see a car crash," Radelet said. "The only thing harder than helping the victims of the car crash is to drive by and not help them and live with that the rest of your life. After doing it once, it's hard not to do it again. There are so many unmet needs." Murphy Davis '71 NO STRANGER TO ACTIVISM The seeds of activism were planted early in Davis' life. She was born in Ruston, LA, the daughter of a Presbyterian minister and a Christian educator. Davis' parents encouraged their two sons and two daugh- ters to be independent thinkers. Debates about the civil rights movement and the Vietnam War filled their home. In college, Davis organized anti-war demonstrations. One summer, she met with minority prisoners to hear firsthand about racial biases in sentencing. By 1976, Davis was ordained. The next year, she was visit- ing death row. John Cole Vodicka, a prisoner activist in South Georgia, said Davis soon developed a reputation. Some prison officials who dis- dain death row activists delight in denying access to prisoners. They rarely played those games with Davis. "Folks know that she's not going to go away," he said. "To harass her or intimidate her is going to backfire." Nibs Stroupe, a prison activist and min- ister, said Davis is aware of her limitations. "Murphy has been at it for a long time," he said. "She's been up and down. She's not going to pour herself out on everyone on death row." Prejean calls Davis her inspiration. When she was thinking of ministering to death row inmates, she traveled to Atlanta to hear Davis speak. "She had that real down-to-earth qual- ity, but she couples it with intelligence, laced with humor. She's not harsh. She's not ma- cho. But she's as strong as the dickens." TOUGH AND TENACIOUS Davis had to summon all her strength last March, when she was struck down by Burkitt's lymphoma, a cancer of the lymph tissues that is confined almost exclusively to children in tropical regions of Africa. Davis' treatment was almost as painful as her diagnosis. She underwent eight hours of major surgery. She endured six months of "mega-chemotherapy," receiving the largest dosage of chemicals a patient can get short of a bone marrow transplant. When the news of Davis' condition spread on death row, inmates pressed Loring for details. "How's Murphy? Tell her we're praying for her," they told him. They sent homemade cards to Davis. The homeless who visited the Open Door sent word to Davis that she was in their prayers. Loring, 56, is quiet when asked about his wife's illness. "It was tough," he said. "But she hasn't complained." The Rev. Gerald Durly, head of Con- cerned Black Clergy, said Davis rarely saw visitors. When she did, though, her spirit was unbowed. "They thought they were ministering to her, but she was ministering to them," Durly said. "She would be sitting, telling people, 'It's going to be all right.'" During her illness, Davis often turned to a favorite Bible passage, Isaiah 43:16: "Do not be afraid . . . Your troubles will not over- whelm you. When you pass through fire, you will not be burned." Davis' thoughts also turned to a man she once knew — Warren McCleskey. GAINING A SENSE OF PEACE In 1978, an Atlanta police officer named Frank Schlatt was shot in the face at close range and killed when he answered a silent alarm at a downtown furniture store. McCleskey, one of the four robbers who were also holding hostages in the store, was sen- tenced to die for the murder. When Davis met McCleskey, he had already started an appeal process that would reach the Supreme Court — twice. He claimed he wasn't the trigger man, and that racial bias tainted his sentence. McCleskey was in many ways a typical death row inmate. He was poor, black and had spent much of his life in trouble. When he first entered death row, McCleskey asked another prisoner how he could maintain his sanity. The prisoner opened the Bible. McCleskey 's conversion began. The Mary Baldwin College Magazine • Fall 1996 17 Prison conversions are tricky matters. Few people place much stock in prisoners who cimvert to avert punishment. Davis said she had no illusions about McCleskey's criminal nature. "He was in trouble for years," she said. "Warren never stepped away from acknowl- edging his guilt and sorrow." Davis said she embraced McCleskey not for what he did, but for the person he be- came. She knew him for 13 years, visiting him weekly and befriending his family. They wrote each other, and Davis rode the same roller coaster of exhilaration and sorrow as McCleskey during his appeals process. McCleskey told Davis he wanted to he forgiven for the pain he had caused others. Eventually, through Davis' coun- seling, McCleskey believed that God had forgiven him. But the courts were not so forgiving. On September 24, 1991, McCleskey was executed. Before his death, he apologized to the Schlatt family. "I pray that you would find It in your heart to forgive me." Jodie Swanner, Schaltt's daughter, who was 1 1 when her father was killed, was not impressed. "The jury gave him the death penalty, and that's what he should get," she said before the execution. "He didn't show my father any mercy." Davis last saw McCleskey in a prison waiting room. As he was being led away in handcuffs, McCleskey smiled at her and waved. "The courts, the media, the prison of- ficials, the threats, and even death itselt lost power in Warren's life," Davis wrote shortly after his death. "He moved toward a peace and serenity 1 have never seen in another human being." A POWERFUL LESSON Four years later, while struggling with her own illness, Davis began to live those words. She thought of McCleskey's courage. She remembered a picture of him, taken days before his execution. He seemed utterly at ease. "That's powerful, because the sense of peace that you see in his face, that didn't change," she said. "We were with him until several hours before he died. He never crumbled. He never showed signs of fear or anxiety." As she told this story, Davis leaned tor- ward in a rocking chair, her eyes locked on her visitor. "For me, the really important resource through that time was the fact that 1 had sat with so many people facing their own death," Davis said. "And I know people who sat, on the day of their deaths, and man- aged to maintain their dignity, their hope- fulness, their love, their humanity, their capacity to not be eaten alive by tear." Five months after her initial diagnosis, Davis completed her chemotherapy. She visited the doctor and awaited the results of CAT scans and blood tests. The tests came back. The were no longer traces of cancer. Her illness was in remission. Davis resumed visiting death row last November. She continues today. She has gained weight, and her hair is growing back. "The people on death row taught me how to face death," Davis says today. "These people who we say have nothing to offer — 1 can tell you what they have to offer. I'm living witness to what they have to offer. And the hope, the love, the lack of fear that 1 was able to experience, was a gift from many of those people."

When Olga came to the Adult Degree Program in April 1993, she intended to major in Spanish, get her teacher licensure, and, after graduation, reopen her preschool. She did major in Spanish and did get her teacher licensure, doing so well that she graduated summa cum laude and with distinction in her major. While in ADP, Olga took on-campus courses. 0( the time she spent on campus she says, "Everything — the staff, the faculty, the student body, the campus itself — was designed to give me a total experience. Everyone embraced my presence and made me feel so good about my input." Olga was particularly valued by her Spanish pn ifessors and by her MBC classmates because of her Puerto Rican background and her command of the Spanish language. She became a mentor, an unofficial tutor, and a second mom to some of the younger students. She and her husband Donald, a former dance instructor, demonstrated Latin dances like the salsa, the merengue and the cumbia at the 1996 MBC Culture Pest. "Donald's dancing was what first caught my eye," says Olga. The interaction between Olga and MBC's residential students was, she says, "really rewarding and it is sinking into my heart." While she loves teaching children, she has decided not to reopen her preschool and is instead planning to get her master's degree in Spanish and teach college Spanish. In the meantime, she has applied as a part-time high school Spanish teacher. This redefinition of her personal goals came about because Olga's classmates and the college helped her recognize her heritage as a rich asset, an asset whose value she herself had never fully appreciated. This kind of personal and intellectual growth is exactly what Mary Baldwin hopes all students will experience during their college careers. This is exactly why the Adult Degree Program was founded 20 years ago.

Mrs. Paine was nominated by her son Rob- ert who said, "My mother's encouragement to talk to strang- ers and to treat them kindly prepared me for life. Af- ter many travels and countless strang- ers, 1 have always been guided by this experience. My mother always said that we need to show kindness to all of God's people." Mrs. Paine's daughter Emily says that her mother "is shy, far more given to holding hands than holding office. She is an everyday saint, whose kindnesses and counseling are only known when someone tells me about them." Mrs. Paine is a retired research chemist and science teacher. She re- tired after her children were born. In the 1960s she began working with al- coholics, especially women, and helped her husband, Robert E. Paine Jr., establish a rehabilitation program when he retired from his career as a physician. Mrs. Paine has also been active in the Salem Presbyterian Church, Friends of the Salem Librar\', the Sa- lem and Roanoke Valley historical societies, the Salem Garden Club, the Archaeological Society, Bethany Hall and the West End Center.

Frankie Wood Apistolas '57, owner of historic Nimrod Hall in Millboro, VA, was featured in an Au- gust article in The Richmond Times - Dispatch for her part in the Nimrod Creative Workshops, week-long sum- mer artist retreats. Apistolas, along with writers Frances Birch, Nancy Wood-Woltz and Joan Dilworth, es- tablished the creative workshops for both painters and writers 1 1 years ago. Nimrod Hall, built in 1783 and named for a biblical hunter, is en- circled by mountains overlooking the Cowpasture River in Bath County. Susan Hankla of Richmond was writer-in-residence at Nimrod Hall this summer. She comments, "You're surrounded by nature here and it re- ally opens you up to writing. This is the perfect space to stir your imagi- nation." The workshops are small, with room for 20 or fewer participants. Birch says that the emphasis of the retreats is to offer artists a unique set- ting and uninterrupted time to work on their craft and get feedback from other artists. Apistolas and her husband Jimmy have operated the unique lodge for the past 25 summers, leav- ing their home in Alexandria for the trek each summer. The home has been in Apistolas' family since her grandparents purchased it in 1907. She was born and raised on Nimrod's grounds. 1(4 Betty Gwaltney Schutte '52 has been elected to the prestigious posi- tion of president of the Garden Club of Virginia.

J0«^- A week after graduation, Julie Young '95 was at work. She had already interned twice in long-term health care, and a fellow Mary Baldwin alumna had helped her find the perfect job. Now at Walter Reed Convales- cent Center, she oversees the facilities and operations of a 161-bed nursing home. Julie knows every resident and every family member who walks in the door. It's a challenge, facing death and dying ever^' day. But it's an inspiration, says Julie, because she knows she is helping people. "I was shy in high school. That's one reason I chose Mary Baldwin, with its small classes and close contact with professors. When you're in that environment, you realize you can really accomplish things. "I valued my years there, and I'll always be nostalgic. I can't give great fortunes, but 1 can give a little. I figure that any amount helps. I wouldn't have wanted to go to any other school, and I want other young women to have the same oppoitunitv'." Julie Young, Class of '95 Nursing home administrator, Gloucester, VA By giimg back to Mary Baldiuin College, yoiL ensure that the Colleges influence will continue to spread.
